みなさん、こんにちは！Good Afternoon everyone!
This JLC meeting, we practiced para-para as a group! Hitomi and Wyatt did a good job as instructors. Many of us seemed to have enjoyed the experience. We also saw that there are several different kinds para-para. For this Sakura Festival, it seems that a form has been selected.
After that we learned many things about arcades in Japan. In the USA, arcades have somewhat dwindled while in Japan, they expanded. Arcades throughout Japan are connected together by an online network that fosters gaming communities. Various interactive forms exists such as DDR or Taiko drums. Also there are card-based games where you can save your progress on a card and there are Gundam pods which the player enters. In the pod, there are various joysticks and a huge display within the pod to create a unique Gundam simulation.
Thursday is the 1st soran bushi practice. For participants, be sure to stretch and eat healthy to do well in training and at the Sakura Festival!
At the 1st week of the Japanese Study Session, few students came, less then what was expected. However, no matter how few, as long as students feel JSS is helpful and JSS is indeed helpful, then it is success! やった！
So kinda random, but I leave with link to a video(music only) of a sega classic. BTW, the guy playing seems really good. So Nostalgic clicky-clicky
P.S. I think there are a few people that come to the meetings and so on, that still don't get weekly e-mails from JLC and would probably like them. If you or anyone you know is like that, please e-mail me so I can add you(or him/her) to the mailing list.
